I'm 46 years old and and very active soccer player that just had a ganglion cyst removed on the inside of my left knee and removed small tear piece of the meniscal with a lot of fluid. I decided to have the surgery after many months of trying to deal with the pain and frustation of not getting better with rest and taking anti inflamatory drugs like Naproxen. The Naproxen 1000 mg per day is what kept my knee swelling down ,but it was not resolving the problem.
